Speaking with MCV on the matter, an Activision representative said it wants to "develop a plan that will enable them to remain as a team.'

"We met with The Blast Furnace this morning and are currently discussing options for their future," an representative told the site. "The Blast Furnace is a very talented studio and has been a great partner to Activision.

"Our preference would be to keep the talented group of employees at The Blast Furnace together and develop a plan that would enable them to remain as a team.”

The development team includes former Rockstar and Team 17 veterans and was also responsible for mobile titles based on Pitfall and Wipeout.
